Not sure if I am going to Make the Liard highway. I am having some electrical problems and if I can't get them sorted out in Ft Nelson, I will have to skip that part of the trip.
My brother lives in Hay River and drives that road regularly. Here is a cut and past of e-mails he sent regarding fuel on the route

This is a bit confusing for me, cause I will probably be going from Fort Nelson to Hay river, not the other way.
So lets see if I have this right.
If I was to get fuel in Ft Nelson and go to Camp 99 27+99=126km
Camp 99 to Ft Liard 75+10=85km
Ft Liard to Ft Simpson 10+217+67=294km
Ft Simpson to Ft Providence 67+225+40=332km
Ft Providence to Hay River 40+101+39=180 km
